Your alarm did not go off this morning, so you barely had time to get dressed and rush to work. On the commute, you spilled your coffee down the front of you. At work your boss micromanaged your every move and your tuna melt sandwich at lunch was stale. You got stuck in traffic on the way home and you forgot to DVR your favorite show that you wanted to watch tonight. You know what you need right now? Glitter donuts! Yes. That is the only thing that is going to turn this day around. You know it. I know it. So let’s do this!
Inspired by a stylized shoot designed to showcase glamorous modern city life, I have an actual glazed glitter donut recipe you can make. So take a deep breath, pop open a bottle of wine, and preheat your oven. It’s time to get your bake on.
- 1 cup of baking flour
- 1/4 cup of granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup of buttermilk
- 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
- 1 egg
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- 1/2 teaspoon of butter flavoring
- 2 tablespoons of milk
- 1 cup of Confectioners’ sugar
- 1 ounce of edible glitter
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit and spray a donut pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
- To make the donuts, mix the flour, sugar, baking power, and salt in a stand mixer.
- In a separate bowl, mix together the egg, oil, and buttermilk.
- Add the buttermilk mixture to the stand mixer ingredients and mix until smooth.
- Pour the batter in the donut pans and fill until almost full.
- Bake for approximately 10 minutes or until cooked completely through. Set aside to cool.
- To make the glaze, add all the glaze ingredients to a saucepan and cook over medium heat. Stir continuously until smooth.
- Glaze the cooled donuts by either pouring the mixture over them while they are resting on a baking rack or drizzle the glaze over them using a spoon. Let glaze cool for 1 minute on the donut and then dip in a dish of the edible glitter. Enjoy!
